Moreover, you might be familiar with ‘OTHERSIDE,’ considering that he debuted it during his live performance from the top of the Berlin TV Tower.
My new single OTHERSIDE is out now! ? Very excited to finally be able to share this with you – It’s a psychedelic excursion into deeper spheres of the mind.

Kicking off, ‘OTHERSIDE’ immediately puts Monolink’s unique textures up front and center. He achieves this through the hypnotic and decadent combination of sultry vocals, guitar melodies, and synths. Nonetheless, his sonic exploration still holds melodic techno aspects to heart while implementing a personal touch. From that point on, analog synthesizers bring a powerful kick, reinvigorating the track and reshaping its sonic trajectory.
“‘Otherside’ is a song inspired by the beauty and dangers of the unknown; a journey to peek behind the curtains of our perceived reality. You may find a place of breathtaking beauty there but you may also never find the way back. ‘Otherside’ is desire that can seduce and betray you. Welcome to the ‘Otherside.‘”Monolink – press release
In tandem, Monolink released a music video for ‘OTHERSIDE’, masterminded by Berlin-based design and motion graphics studio Pfadfinderei.
